However bad it has got at Manchester United this season, it has always been worse at Chelsea.
The Premier League was lacking a figure of fun when Ed Woodward resigned two years ago and Todd Boehly is a worthy successor. Chelsea spent more than £1billion on players over three transfer windows and are in the bottom half of the table.
For the Fulham game last month, Chelsea arranged for six identically dressed actors to stand behind the home dugout in a shameless publicity stunt to plug the new film Argylle.
"Have you seen any of those viral videos of wildly extravagant Gender Reveals where things go terribly wrong?" wrote the venerable film critic Richard Roeper. "That’s pretty much how I felt watching Argylle." The critically savaged Argylle was made for $200million, so that is another expensive dud Chelsea have damaged.
Wolves, skint and deprived of their best playing assets last season, vanquished Chelsea 4-2 on Sunday. They were unbeaten in seven games before United outclassed them for 60 minutes at Molineux.

That victory may be the turning point in United's season, for their enterprising football as much as the dramatic denouement. Wolves have done the double over Chelsea this term and beaten Manchester City and Tottenham on their own patch.
Chelsea are worse than United at almost everything bar their exquisite catering. Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez almost cost a quarter of a billion between them. Caicedo was like Patrick Vieira at Brighton. Now he resembles Eric Djemba-Djemba.
